What Are Obama's Priorities?

I want to tell you about the Black Panther story from the beginning, because something is not right.

On Election Day in 2008, the New Black Panther Party had a national effort to send out its members to polling locations. They called the election an "emergency" situation. Two of those members were caught on tape at a polling location in Philadelphia, in full paramilitary uniform and reportedly brandishing a baton.

One of the Panthers, King Samir Shabazz, was reportedly harassing and intimidating voters and poll workers. This was supposed to be an open and shut case. Former President Bush starts the prosecution before the end of his term, but then President Obama comes in and decides suddenly, in May of 2009, to drop the case. A former Department of Justice official ends up resigning in protest over the case and testifies about it.

Bartel Bull, a civil rights lawyer in the 1960s and the former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the "most blatant form of voter intimidation" he had ever seen. That's saying something — and this isn't some right-wing Republican shill. Bull also said the Black Panthers intimidated voters and tried to "interfere with the work of other poll observers," telling one that, "you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

Then this video of one of the accused, King Samir Shabazz was uncovered:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SAMIR SHABAZZ: I hate white people — all of them. Every last iota of a cracker — I hate him. Because we're still in this condition.

We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore (expletive) on our arms.

You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill some of their babies. Let us get our act together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The Obama Justice Department still maintains the case isn't supported by the facts. This racist I just showed you got less than a slap on the wrist. He is not allowed to go to any Philadelphia polling locations... until 2012. Gee, what's going on that year? Oh, and he can still go to polling locations in other towns.

New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz mocked the outcome:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MALIK SHABAZZ, NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY: King Samir can't go back to polling place until 2012 and I don't think he cares if he goes back to a polling place until 2012.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Despite all this, there is no interest in the case — a case that shouldn't have been dropped in the first place. Let's look now at the priorities of this president:

The president took 93 days to respond to McChrystal's Afghanistan report

It took the president 57 days to meet with BP's CEO

It took two weeks for the president to make a formal statement on the Christmas Day bomber

477 days since undercover ACORN tapes surfaced, no official investigation

It was 47 days before the White House commented on our Van Jones immigration

Clearly, no rush with any of those decisions. So, what does the president care about?

After the Professor Gates incident, Obama told the nation two days later — admittedly without the facts — that the police "acted stupidly"

Arizona has been begging for border reinforcements for 454 days; it took the Obama administration 78 days to file their lawsuit

The Obama administration took 37 days to order a stop to drilling in the Gulf; after the court overturned the moratorium, it took them eight hours to re-file

Then you have the police shooting case in Oakland. 23-year-old Oscar Grant was being arrested and allegedly resisting when the officer says he tried to shoot him with his Taser. He claims he accidentally pulled his real gun by mistake. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Protests ensued and it didn't take long before looting and rioting broke out. Over 80 were arrested as windows were smashed, cars were burned and so on. Now, I'm sure there were plenty of legitimately angry, regular citizens there. But there were also lots of signs and groups there. Remember, this is San Francisco — home of Van Jones' STORM and the Ella Baker Center and all sorts of communist groups. They spread the word leading up to the verdict.

Anarchist News wrote: "We are anarchists who live in the Bay. We are outraged by the murder of Oscar Grant, and we are pissed at continuing police violence and disregard of communities' health and safety. We're writing this letter to all the people who are going be in the streets the day of Mehserle's verdict."

The latest edition of Revolutionary Communist Party USA read: "The Whole Damn System is Guilty! We demand Justice for Oscar Grant"

Revolution Books writes: "There are plans for a convergence in downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway at 6 p.m. on the day the verdict is announced. People need to be there and elsewhere to respond politically to the verdict. And the L.A. Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant is calling on people to gather at the courthouse."

And The Ella Baker Center: "There has been a city-wide call for folks to come out on the evening of the verdict to 14th and Broadway in downtown Oakland for a rally, speak out and open-mic. Members of the Ella Baker Center team will be out in the streets that evening to stand with the community as we call for justice."

We're dealing with radicals here and these people mean what they say. These aren't empty words. When they say revolution, they mean revolution.

And how long did it take the Department of Justice to respond to Mehserle verdict? Just two hours:

"The Justice Department has been closely monitoring the state's investigation and prosecution. The Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office, and the FBI have an open investigation into the fatal shooting and, at the conclusion of the state prosecution, will conduct an independent review of the facts and circumstances to determine whether the evidence warrants federal prosecution."

The president can say whatever he wants, but the actions of this administration — especially when it comes to radicals — speak volumes.

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
